Real estate in industrial and factory buildings is nearly always at a premium, so instead of using expensive space unnecessarily, Hammond Manufacturing offers a range of three sizes of fold down shelves. FDS Series shelves can be mounted either to the internal or external surface of the door or to the side of a cabinet. The shelves, rated at 100 lbs capacity, lock solidly up into the horizontal position when required and then fold down out of the way to save floor space when they are not needed. They provide a useful temporary surface for laptops, test and measurement or servicing and configuration equipment required to access the mounted equipment inside the enclosure.
Three sizes are available as standard: 12 x 12, 18 x 18 and 24 x 24 inches; steel versions are finished in ANSI 61 Gray or RAL 7035 Light Gray as standard. The new additions to the line are manufactured from 316 grade stainless steel, enabling them to be installed in applications where corrosion is a potential issue, such as when enclosures are located outside. They can also be used in production environments such as food preparation areas where equipment is frequently hosed down for hygiene reasons.
